So we got Greinke-d for the second time this year. At least we can’t say it hasn’t happened to a lot of other teams. And really, we had our opportunities with some early baserunners, but they got erased by timely (untimely) double plays.
Um, did Edwin Jackson skip out on PFP this spring? Errant throws by pitchers that remind us of the 2006 World Series are not permitted.
It’s a good thing the “Who’s Your Tiger” campaign has come to an end, because no one would have Brandon Lyon as their Tiger, and this would give him quite a complex. I’m sorry, but when you come into a game and immediately surrender the long ball, it’s just not endearing.
It was nice to see Nate Robertson have a clean outing, even if it was only a third of an inning. Straight zeros across his line. Very neat and tidy.
That’s all I got for last night’s game folks. Let’s just move on--quickly.

Ooh, Holliday could have received disciplinary action for that little gesture.

I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to share these snaps with you. Today seems to be the day, as the Tigers (Morris' 77-90 team) are playing the Twins (Morris' 91 team and current employer--he's in his 6th year as a Twinkies broacaster). You surely do not recall (I don't expect retention of the fare produced here) that I mentioned I was going to the game on Monday, May 4. The giveaway that night was a Jack Morris jersey/t-shirt.

I will “gracing” the CoPa with my presence at tonight’s game—ha ha. I hope I don’t bring a hex with me as I just found out my son’s baseball team is the Twins. I must admit that I do like the TC logo on the caps. It’s 80s night at the ballpark tonight (groan). I’m not too into the hokey themed nights like Country Night, etc. Absurdly, I go to the park to watch the ballgame being played. It’s also a promotional night in which the first 10,000 fans receive a Jack Morris replica jersey/t-shirt. Is jersey/t-shirt an oxymoron? I never make it the park that early, so I’m sure I won’t get one anyway. The weather is expected to be picture-perfect, so play ball!
I’m looking forward to my first live look at Mr. Jackson. While scrutinized at the time (by myself and a lot of others), the trade is turning out well for us so far. I still believe Matt Joyce will be a quality player, and I’m interested in his career/progress. But, it turns out we really needed another starter, what our left-handers’ pitching skills going AWOL and Jeremy Bonderman’s extended rehab.Last year, I somehow made it into two video highlights due to the Puma hitting opposite field home runs right into my section. My son said he hopes I get into another one this year. I tried to explain how unlikely that is, but hey Miggy, if you wanna jack one into my row, have at it! However, everyone made a lot of fun of me in those clips, so maybe I should lay low. I’m starting to feel like Kathy Lee Gifford with all these mentions of my son, so I’m gonna try to limit that. No sense in alienating and annoying your readers.
